Dr. Matthew Jenner

Matt obtained a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Nottingham under the guidance of Professor Neil J. OldhamLink opens in a new window. Here, his research focused primarily on the application of protein mass spectrometry to elucidate mechanisms of polyketide biosynthesis and was recognised by the award of the Springer thesis prize. In 2014, Matt commenced postdoctoral research under the supervision of Professor Gregory L. ChallisLink opens in a new window at the University of Warwick, where he pursued a genomics-driven approach for the discovery of new natural products and biosynthetic pathways in bacteria.

In 2017, he was awarded a Leverhulme Early Career FellowshipLink opens in a new window, and subsequently a BBSRC Discovery FellowshipLink opens in a new window (2018 - 2021), which focussed on the application of structural mass spectrometry techniques to map protein-protein interactions in modular polyketide synthases. In 2021, he was appointed as an Assistant Professor of Biological Mass Spectrometry at the University of Warwick to start his independent group. In 2022, he was awarded a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship,Link opens in a new window and in 2023 promoted to Associate Professor.
